# Carbon Dioxide - Dynamic and Kinematic Viscosity

## Online calculator, figures and table showing dynamic and kinematic viscosity of carbon dioxide, CO2, at varying temperature and pressure - Imperial and SI Units

The viscosity of a fluid is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress.

For further definitions, go to Absolute (dynamic) and kinematic viscosityAbsolute or dynamic viscosity is used to calculate Reynold's Number to determine if a fluid flow is laminar, transient or turbulent.

Tabulated values and viscosity units conversion are given below the figures.
